Is it open source?

- futaba + futallaby + tinyib -

What are those links supposed to be? It seems like only one of them is pointing to a repository, although the other two also mention some kind of code. Am confused.

If it's a fork, can't they remove all that mv3 crap?

https://developer.chrome.com/docs/extensions/mv3/intro/mv3-overview/

Manifest V3 is available beginning with Chrome 88

Even if it's hard-wired into the code to the point that it's irremovable, they can base their forks on previous versions of Chrome/Chromium, just like Palemoon bases itself on an older version of Firefox, yet still delivers security updates. This seems like a logical solution to me, but perhaps I'm missing something.

There's something similar on Windows, where someone would tell others to "open cmd.exe" and type del System32, which would destroy the core system files. Probably the simplest form of malware to ever exist. I've heard stories of people actually falling for that.

Do captchas even help though? They sure help prevent automated sign-ups, but spam? The modlog documents several spam waves that happened right before registration was disabled. Even Raddle suffers from this, hence why they currently enforce the same measures.

I experienced a few errors while posting this. At first, submission returned a 500 internal server error. Trying the second time (after removing the link from the "url" input area) outputed something on the lines of "invalid CSRF token". Third time's the charm - reposting once again yielded no errors. I think this may have something to do with the fact that I am posting from yggdrasil.

Good to now. I am currently researching about yggdrasil. It seems like great technology, and actually fits most of my use cases. I was getting tired of I2P's slow speeds, so I began digging deeper into alternative P2P networks that are less on anonymity and more on decentralization.

There is a bug on your search form. Any search result comes with a warning message:

Warning: Use of undefined constant allow - assumed 'allow' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in /var/www/html/forms_php/search.php on line 160

The number of times this warning appears is equivalent to the number of search results returned.

If you ask me, I'd say I2P, but that's just something that I personally find quite cool. All networks have their own use cases, it's hard to recommend anything specific. TOR is perhaps the most mainstream network out there, so you'll probably have less problems installing it. I2P is not as mainstream as TOR, and it requires a bit more technical knowledge to setup properly.

I don't think you're new to these two darknets, since you're here on Ramble. I just think that it's easier to take the beaten path if you want less issues. There's obviously a shit ton of darknets out there, each with their own quirks and technology.

To be honest, I find Utopia extremely suspicious. First of all, searching them up returns multiple different websites all talking about the same thing, but styled in slightly different ways. Second, it has something to do with crytpo. Anything that has something to do with crypto currency, to me, is by default suspicious. And most importantly, it's closed-source.

This last point is probably why you're not getting anything. If it was open-source, you might have gotten someone who knows a thing or two about Windows to look at the source code and tell the developers exactly where they messed up. But since it's not open-source, you rely solely on the project owners to fix whatever issue you're having. Theoretically, you could go in full hacker mode and troubleshoot it yourself, if you care enough, but that's just so much work for such little outcome.

I too have once been interested in this project, especially after reading their manifesto. Obviously, the closed-source bit just killed it for me. I later began researching similar technology and found out about a bunch of other interesing, and much more popular networks. Sometimes you just have to dig a bit deeper before adopting something.

The amount of Utopia propaganda I have seen is much larger compared to other projects. Whenever you see something being advertised, think about why it's being advertised. Is it because the creators want to share their creation with others, or is it because they want more people to use it because that gives them profits?

I don't think there's any permanent solution to service providers deciding to not provide you with a service. One could hack their way through by applying workarounds where possible, although that's only temporary. Anonymity networks generally solve the tracking problem, but they come with their own issues. It's impractical to use darknets for daily tasks, especially when you have a slow connection, plus the lack of mass adoption.

Throat's interface looks neat, but I think it's more js-reliant than postmill. You could assume this just by looking at the languages used in the git repos, although that hardly ever means anything.

Phuks also has this "score" and "level" system which I don't really understand. And user posts/comments are only visible to logged in users. Maybe this can be toggled somewhere, or is only a feature specific to phuks, not sure.

I saw that this question was posted to RedditAlternatives, and got removed. I suspect that there's a new unspoken rule on that subreddit where you can't discuss anything related to banned subs. Perhaps the mods are afraid that they'll go down the same way WRD did, or just don't want the subreddit to be a lifeboat for banned communities.

Anyways. I couldn't find anything related to this on any other website, but I found r/MovieStreamingSite

2,611 readers 35 users here now

Seems pretty active, but will probably get banned as well.

I have indeed noticed some quirks. I thought that they were weird, since my browser (Pale Moon) kept showing me errors whenever I loaded the site. I even reported this in the #ramble channel on irc2p, although I had to go offline, so I don't know if you responded or not. Also, I'm unable to login over I2P now for some reason. I can't really tell whether it's an issue with the browser or the site, since everything worked fine before.
